RE: [xml-dev] storing XML files

[putting on my technology bulletproof vest and marketing glasses]

Embrace and extend... sounds REALLY familiar ;->

At least we admit it's not XPath...

And we ARE talking technology... if I was talking marketing; I would let
you call it XPath ;->

[returning to reality... ;->]

One of my colleagues has written a nice article explaining what Tamino
to "embrace and extend" XPath and why:

> It's a fact, they know it,

For better or worse, Tamino developers invented a simple schema language
long before the W3C XSD even took shape, and invented the term "X-Query"
describe the XPath+wildcards language before the W3C decided to call
effort "XQuery". 

Speaking of XQuery and the XML community, I invite interested people
download our prototype implementation of the language at
http://www.softwareag.com/developer/download.htm and express opinions on
language and/or the implementation in the XML Query forum at
